January 3, 2019

University of Pacific forward Jeremiah Bailey of Fairbanks showed no fear in the closing moments of a nationally televised game against BYU.

With his team trailing by 3 with just over a minute left, the 6-foot-6 sophomore southpaw converted a dribble-drive three-point play to tie the game.

Bailey’s bucket tied the score at 84-84 with 62 seconds left, but BYU won the game 90-87 on ESPN.

Bailey, of Monroe Catholic High fame, finished with six points coming off the bench. He also made a 3-pointer, giving him at least one triple in 10 of his 16 games.

The Pima College transfer is averaging 4.4 points per game on 36 percent shooting. He has earned nine starts.

Bailey has twice scored nine points for his season high.
